Week 2

So last week was the first week after my vacation.  As some of you may know I spent the begining part of last week out sick with some sort of cold bug, so I couldn't get to the gym that much.  Not to mention I took some time to spend at Taco Bell, and Chipotle.  Although I didn't experience any weight loss success, this week marks the beginning of my workout routine and serious dieting to start shedding some pounds.  I even got my girlfriend on board to workout with me, as well as promise to stop going out to eat as much.

As I mentioned last week I have a pair of jeans that I've owned for a little over a year now.  They were the only pair of jeans that I would wear and I rarely wore them at home.  The only time I put them on was if I was going somewhere that required a little more than PJ's.  They are size 42 relaxed fit.  So basically they're 44's with baggy legs.  I used to HATE wearing these since after about 45 mins of wearing them, they would start to cut into my waist.  They barely fit my thighs in and I had to suck in my gut just to get them to zip up.  I'm happy so say now that they are now part of my 'Fat Clothes' collection.  I don't like wearing them anymore since they look so baggy on me.  I recently went out and bought new jeans and fit into size 40 straight leg.  No baggy relaxed fit anymore, regular jeans that you can find in a regular store!  Not only that, but I've also started to fit into XL's more instead of almost ripping my gut out of XXL's.

There comes some problems with losing weight of course, like not having clothes that fit or look good.  I spent 3 years working at Spencers and after that time, I've amassed quite a collection of Douchbag graphic tee's.  Not only are these too big to fit me, they also look terrible.  As summer is approaching I have no idea what I want to wear.  I know my style is going to include less 'Extreme Couture' shirts and more non logo wear.  We'll see how the summer shapes up, but it's looking like an all new wardrobe is going to be a little pricey.  On the other hand I don't want to spend too much since next year I'm likely to run into the same problem (given that my dieting goes well).  But on the other hand I'm guessing that is a good problem to have.

If you can find a worse (and by worse I mean fatter) picture of me somewhere please share so I can get a better 'Before' picture.  Hopefully I can post some current body pictures soon, as if any of you actually want to see that.

Below is a 2 for 1!  Not only do I look fat, but I'm also wearing a Douchy shirt.  Bonus points for anyone who was watching my fat belly rock out on stage with Chemcoma that night!
